As what should have been Summer's 5th birthday has passed, I urge everyone who cares to sign the Child Abuse Prevention Act at goPetition.com . We are hoping for 5000 signaturs and thre are hardly any from WA state. Do you care?

I worked very diligently with many others to get signatures for "Dylan's Law" to be put on the ballot. We were close but not close enough. I, too, wonder why people won't sign petitions when they regard protecting our children from monsters like Joseph Duncan, or parents like the Lytles.
Don't people care about innocent children who are unable to protect themselves?

Maybe it was the wording of the bill you wanted to put into law that put people off? What did it say, exactly?
